Yes Brian, see help for Stata's command shell.

For example
  shell notepad.exe
starts a notepad on a Windows machine.

You may also examine c(os) variable to make sure your program is
running on the proper platform.

Best, Sergiy

Usually I'm running stata in batch mode on unix so I'd like to be able to execute a unix command within a do file.  For example when I'm using sas, I can use the command below to execute a stata do file
